    Re-activated based on feedback from another customer:

    The customer would like to use a custom truststore to add/import the LDAP certificates. If there is a change in the OS or Java upgrade which in turn impacts or replaces the cacerts. So the customer has to import all the trust/LDAP certificates into java's cacerts Keystore. Also looks like they have some restrictions to using it.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, or the idea has aged or has been implemented, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.


    Please check with latest version (7.3 at the time of this writing) and re-open if needed.

    The setting of:

    /bin/set_env

    "JAVA_OPTS" including
    -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=\"/opt/urbancode/server/opt/tomcat/conf/tomcat.keystore\" -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=\"changeit\""

    configures the outbound SSL connections. We think that an outbound SSL connection is needed if integrating with an LDAP server.

    For this scenario, we would need to have a setting of:

    javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword

    in secured-installed.properties.
